The Vanishing Thames
Transport For London decided to wreck Harry Beck’s iconic and innovative London Underground map by removing the Thames from it – essentially destabilising the grid by taking out its psychological compass. But there was clearly a craftier reason behind the move, which took place without public consultation of any kind; they hid the zone charges as well.
The good news? A wave of public outrage has led to the decision being instantly reversed, resulting in a victory against the little creep who came up with this scam.
